January 15 - 16, 2021
Lodge at Port Arrowhead, Lake Ozark

See schedule below

MO Dairy is the newly formed dairy group in Missouri. They have moved the Expo to The Lodge at Port Arrowhead, Lake Ozark, MO. The Friday schedule is condensed and Missouri Holstein is not hosting a fund raising activity.

The State Sale committee decided that for 2020 we are going to host a calf and heifer sale in conjunction with Missouri 4-H Dairy Cow Camp in May. This will provide a tag-sale type environment for both youth and adults to purchase high quality calves ready to show and provide opportunity for high quality genetics.

Friday evening Missouri Holstein will host committee meetings along with the presentation of awards from 2020 during the MO Dairy social event. Junior Princess and Miss crowning will also take place Friday evening. Saturday will feature our regular meetings along with a junior speech run-off. No formal meal will be occurring on Saturday. A box lunch is available.
